Gelinaz Stay In with Felix Schellhorn

Gelinaz, the chef’s collective,  are back in town on the 3rd December. But this time, they are not travelling, they are staying “at home”. What travels this time, are their recipes. Each chef had to submit eight recipes that are typical for him/her, but she/he never served them at the restaurant yet. Those recipes were then shuffled and sent to another chef who will remix them in his/her own way and serve on the 3rd of December, for one night only, dishes inspired by those recipes to her/his guests. The guests and the chef will get to know whose recipes was interpreting the chef only at the end of the dinner through the Gelinaz ambassador who will attend the dinner (I will be that night the ambassador at the Aimsir restaurant in Ireland). Ambassadors will also take care of communication from the restaurants on that night, so if you are curious what is happening on the other side of the world, do follow us on Instagram (mine is here).


Felix Schellhorn has received the recipes. And now?


What was your first thought when you read the recipes you received?

I was like LOL. Too much fish. What the fuck is milkfish? Where is my underwear? 

What do you think of them now?

Does my grandma know what abalone is? Would she make a sauce out of it?
Okay, I’ll do a maccheroni sauce (mac’n’cheese) instead.

If you had to choose an animal to describe them, what would it be?

Humpback Whale

How will you approach it?

It’s going to be a sick performance. I am really looking forward. It’s probably the coolest dinner or something like it on that day on this planet.
What I can definitely say is that I am going to showcase the whole house/hotel, and not just the restaurant.

What will be the greatest challenge for you in this Gelinaz project? 

To make a puree out of every ingredient.

And what are you looking forward to?

Mixing and blending the ingredients.

After this event is behind you, what’s the next thing?
I am going to have delicious lunch at my grandmother’s home on the following day and after that I will head back to Vienna. 
Felix will cook at Der Seehof in Goldegg (Salzburg). Tickets are available here.
